Fascists hate this book. Wonder why?
Orwell was a brilliant author and staid observer of the human condition. This book is so insightful, it is almost a cliche. Fascists hate it because it exposes why nationalism and racial pride are both absurd nonsense.

The book is great. I'm surprised to see it called "poisonous". Peraonally, have held this to be the most beautiful love story I've ever read. I know its not the focus of the book, but its a huge part of the plot.
I would dismiss any negative reviews. Simply look at how no real point is ever made here about why it is bad. So I dismiss any negative reviews in the same manor that they dismiss this book. Without reason. I wipe my arse with their reviews.. Bahaha!
Good recording is more the point... Well read.

STOP White GeNOcide
ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!
Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

I hate 1984. It's poisonous. If I could set things alight simply with my gaze, and by casting thoughts of burning hatred, that book would be reduced to nothing but a pile of ashes. I write this as a negative infinity-billion!

This is a fantastic book and also very important.From what i have read,the movie was made to stop people from reading the book.The book has so much more information in it,than the movie.I find people who dislike this,just dont understand it,its warning and its message.This book is still very relevant especially that is was written in 1948,and explains systems of political control & oligarchical collectivism in great detail.If you interested propaganda,geopolitics,history,dystopian future wars ,than read this/listen rather than watch the movie.George Orwell was an genius!

I first read this book in 1968 at the end of my school career and found it to be really far-fetched and an impossibly inconceivable science fiction tale. Today, I must admit that much of it has come to pass.
Human thought has been shaped by the people that control the Western media, our “telescreens”. Very subtly, by allowing fictional characters to repeatedly accept things bordering on the ridiculous, the audience have had the seed sown in each of us that maybe we are out of step with society in some way and they have imperceptibly moulded our thinking to comply.
As an example, I am mindful of the majority of pre-1960s society considering sex between two people of the same sex, as something abhorrent, rather as we see pedophiles today. Now “same sex Marriage” is something taken seriously as a “sexual preference”. If we ask the question in company “How the hell did we let this happen to ourselves”, one can feel people glancing nervously at each other and distancing themselves by body language.
How soon before we come to accept pedophilia as yet another “sexual preference”?
What Orwell did not allow for, was the increased open communication between people that is afforded by the internet. Only lately have the powers that be, made serious attempts to muzzle to opinions of people that don’t conform. With horror I now find that I am asking myself if readers of this outburst of mine will be able to track my computer’s IP address and mark me as a “bigot” when next I go for an interview for a job or a social benefit. I expect that my email and Facebook pages will be swamped with adverts shaped towards my preferences. Big brother “knows” me.

such a great writer. read most of his books and notes (under your nose etc), and just learnd so much.
Every day I go to work by the sub. I cant read because of its movements and noises. After buying my Audible my life have changed. I hear my favorite magazines and books, and hear it through my Ipod. By the way - its very nice to fall asleep with as well..
I bought it through a product reviews web site (Consumer Product Reviews), and I got a Audible Coupons from them: two free Audiobook downloads. Here is the URL: http://www.consumer-productreviews.com/audio-books/audible-audio-books.html
It has really changed my life, so I had to share it with you guys.

I Have Not Only Thought That...
...but have recently witnessed with sub rosa documentation (and continue to) witness and experience it nearly every day, horrifically, in ______, __'s [yes, traditional] "healing and helping" professions, et. al.? -- oh, sorry: in that city's Ministry of Love? However, pursuant to a different real-time ending of the narrative, I would ask here: am I the only person to have read between the precision strategic lines on the Internet, per unimpeachable source, written by one or more [not something we will or would specify] U.S. Military officer's texts, which were presented with the subtle control -- though with a more direct and amplified commonweal protective task -- of a good technical sergeant? This novel and its performance are among the great in literature. But it is no longer fiction. And that will not be believed for a time, by most.

Foreshadowing of things to come
I pulled out 1984 a few years ago, reading it for the first time since I was forced to in school. Thirty years later, it takes on a whole new meaning. Parts of 1984 I could see reflected in Washington in the years of 1993 through 2001. And now, even in the first week of a new Presidency, the concepts, the principles, the warnings that Orwell shouted from the rooftops are as valid today as they were at the first writing. Who ever thought that Orwell's portent would be reflected in Twenty First Century America.
